    For weight loss dieting is often more effective than exercise.

    To avoid regaining lost weight you must not lose more than 10lbs a month.

    Reducing your intake of sugar and animal fats can help.

    Sugar loaded foods include sweets, desserts, cakes, cookies and biscuits as well as candy, ice cream, pizzas and a lot of other junk foods.

    Fat loaded foods include red meat and poultry as well as a lot of junk foods.

    More fruit and vegetables (but not chips, potatoes and sweet potatoes) and less red meat and poultry can help to boost your metabolism and that can help for weight loss.

    Drinking plenty of water in between meals can also help to boost your metabolism and that can also help for weight loss.

    You can also boost your metabolism with lemon juice and organic apple cider vinegar but both of them need to be diluted with a lot of water.

    Very high fiber foods such as wheat germ and wheat bran can also help for weight loss. They are rich in protein, potassium, magnesium, iron and zinc and contain good amounts of calcium as well in addition to vitamin B12, folates and other B vitamins.

    A vegetarian or vegan diet can often help for weight loss but most people are probably not interested in vegetarian diets that include lacto vegetarian diets that include dairy products and ovo vegetarian diets that include eggs.

    Pescetarian diets include sea foods and they can also help for weight loss. Fish includes unsaturated fats as well as saturated fats.

    A vegan diet excludes all food that comes from an animal (and that includes dairy products, eggs, meat, poultry and sea food) and that can also help for weight loss.

    In general very few vegetarians or vegans are overweight. Some vegetarians or vegans who are overweight consume too much sugar.

    Red meat and poultry as well as junk foods are foods that you are probably better off without if you want to lose weight. They can be replaced with 50gm of nuts (about 350 calories) per day or fish.

    The healthy food pyramid recommends something like 70% carbohydrates (including fruit and vegetables), 20% protein and 10% fats so most of your calories should come from carbohydrates such as grains, cereals, muesli, fruit and vegetables. Good cereals and mueslis are those that have a total sugars content below 15%.

    All healthy diets for weight loss seem to have 4 items in common, these being a modest calorie intake (always at least 1,200 calories per day), a low sugar intake, a low animal fat intake and a lot of fruit and vegetables.

    Eggs, dairy products and fish are good proteins and fats and all vegetable fats are good unsaturated fats with the exception of coconut oil and palm oil which are saturated fats.
